We consider the E_2-algebra consisting of free loop spaces of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces with one parametrised boundary component, and compute the homotopy type of its group completion: it is the product of \Omega\infty MTSO with the free \Omega\infty-space generated by a certain space X. This extends the classical result due to Madsen and Weiss to the setting of surface bundles over S^1.

The proof consists of two inputs. The first input, on which my talk will focus, is an analysis of centralisers of mapping classes in generic mapping class groups Gamma_{g,n}, for g>=0 and any n>=1: this uses standard techniques of the theory of mapping class groups, such as arc complexes. The other input, which I will only briefly mention, is a generalised theory of operads with homological stability in the setting of coloured operads.

This is joint work with Florian Kranhold and Jens Reinhold.
